Bump with ring around it: How to Get Rid of Bedbugs (Safely and for Good)
Common Skin Rashes | Everyday Health
A skin rash is an area of skin that has become swollen, inflamed, or irritated. Skin rashes can include skin bumps that look like pimples or sores; blotchy, scaly or red skin; and itchy or burning skin. Allergens, heat, and certain medical conditions (some more serious than others) can all cause skin reactions like these. Some skin rashes occur right away, while others take some time to develop. Some tend to occur on the face while others flare up on the arms, legs, or torso. Location, appearance, and color of a skin rash are all factors in determining the right diagnosis and the right treatment.
It’s important to note that the word “rash can mean a whole lot of things to a whole lot of different people,” says Whitney High, MD, the director of dermatopathology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver, and a spokesperson for the American Academy of Dermatology. “To a dermatologist, rash is an extremely broad term, ranging from connective tissue disease like lupus, to infections, to something very obvious” — for example, after using a new laundry detergent, you notice redness and irritation in your underarms; when you switch back to your old detergent, it goes away.
Some rashes may be relatively harmless and easy enough to take care of at home while others can be more problematic. So how do you know when to see your doctor for medical treatment? Isabela Jones, MD, a dermatologist at McLean Dermatology and Skincare Center in McLean, Virginia, recommends seeking medical attention if any of the following symptoms are also present:
- Fever, which “can indicate the presence of an infection, serious reaction to a medication, or rheumatologic disease,” says Dr. Jones.
- Blisters or open sores on the skin, mouth, or genitalia. “Some benign rashes, like poison ivy, can cause small blisters in the skin. However, many times blisters and open sores can indicate a serious or life-threatening condition that requires immediate intervention,” she notes.
- A rash that is painful and that is all over the body or spreading rapidly.
- A rash that has not improved with home care.
Dr. High notes that if you’re feeling well and the condition is not interfering with your quality of life, it’s fine to try reasonable home remedies, such as hydrocortisone cream. But if the irritation persists, however innocuous it may seem, it’s a good idea to check with your doctor. “Usually, if a rash has not improved within two weeks of starting home care, seeking medical care would be recommended,” says Jones. “Contacting a dermatologist or primary care provider is never a bad idea if someone is uncertain about how to treat the rash, or is generally worried about the appearance of the rash,” says Jones.
If you’re suffering from a skin rash, check out the following images to see if it could be one of these. (Warning: A few of these rashes might be a little tough to look at.)
Bed Bug Bite
Is this your child’s symptom?
Symptoms of Bed Bug Bites
- Usually cause itchy, red bumps in a group or line
- Often they look like a hive or mosquito bite
- Bite may have a red dot (puncture) in the center. This is where the bed bug bit through the skin.
- Occasionally, a small blister can occur in the center
- Bites are usually on exposed skin (arms, legs and face)
- Bites are usually first noted in the morning
Diagnosis of Bed Bug Bites
- Live bed bugs hide and are not usually seen. Close inspection of the mattress may find some.
- They are ¼ inch (6 mm), flat, oval shaped, reddish-brown bugs.
- Suspect bed bugs if over 3 red bumps in a row are on exposed skin. The bumps or bites are very itchy.
- Bed bug waste is found on bedding or mattress seams. It looks like dark brown flecks or coffee grounds.
- A blood stain on the sheet may sometimes be found. This is from a bug smashed after feeding.
Cause of Bed Bug Bite Reactions
- The skin bumps are the body’s reaction to the bug’s saliva.
- While the bug is sucking blood, some of its secretions get mixed in.
- Bed bugs are small visible blood-sucking bugs. They are about ¼ inch (6 mm) in length.
- During the day, bed bugs hide in the corners of mattresses. They may also be found in bed crevices, floors, and walls.
- At night, the bed bugs come out of hiding. They feed on humans for about 5 minutes.
Prevention of Getting Bed Bugs
- Over half of bed bug infestations within homes start after recent travel.
- Avoid hotels and hostels where bed bugs have been reported.
- When you check into a hotel room, look for signs of bed bugs. Look for flecks of their waste (like coffee grounds) in the bedding and mattress. If present, ask for another room.
- Keep your luggage and clothing on a luggage rack off the floor.
- When you return from a trip, place all travel clothing into the clothes dryer. Run the dryer for 20 minutes. (Reason: The heat will kill any bed bugs or their eggs that are present). One pregnant bed bug can spread bed bugs to an entire house.
Frequent Questions (FAQs)
- Can bed bugs transmit HIV or hepatitis? This is highly unlikely. It has never been reported.
- Do bed bugs like dirt? Not really. What bed bugs like is the warmth of the human body. Dirty and cluttered spaces just give bed bugs a place to hide.
- Are bed bugs too small to be seen? No. You can see adult bed bugs. They are about the size of an apple seed (4-7 mm; ¼ inch).
- Are bed bugs scared of the light? They do prefer darkness. But keeping the light on will not stop bed bugs from biting you.

Care Advice for Bed Bug Bites
- What You Should Know About Bed Bug Bites:
- Bed bug bites cause itchy red bumps.
- They are usually less than ½ inch (12 mm) in size.
- Some are larger (like a hive). These are normal reactions to a bed bug.
- A large hive does not mean your child has an allergy.
- The redness does not mean the bite is infected.
- Bed bugs do not carry any infectious diseases.
- Don’t panic: You can get rid of bed bugs from your home.
- Here is some care advice that should help.
- Steroid Cream for Itching:
- To reduce the itching, use 1% hydrocortisone cream (such as Cortaid). No prescription is needed.

Cellulitis is an infection caused by a bacteria, typically streptococcus or staphylococcus, entering through a crack or break in your skin. It may also enter through areas of dry, flaky, or swollen skin.
Cellulitis causes red, painful, tender, hot, swollen skin and may or may not be accompanied by oozing, blisters, red spots, or skin dimpling. It may spread quickly. While it typically presents as a rash on the lower legs, it can also occur as a rash on the arms, face, and other areas.
A severe infection may cause fever, chills, and red streaks. The infection can spread to the lymph nodes and bloodstream, so cellulitis requires immediate medical attention because it can become life-threatening.
If you have symptoms of cellulitis with a fever or a rash that is changing rapidly, seek medical attention immediately.
Chickenpox is a virus that causes itchy, red, fluid-filled blisters all over the body accompanied by a fever, body aches, a sore throat, and loss of appetite 10 to 21 days after exposure to the virus. It is extremely contagious until every blister has crusted over and it usually lasts for five to 10 days.
Children afflicted with chickenpox should be kept out of school to avoid spreading it to other children.
Contact your doctor if the rash spreads to one or both eyes; the rash gets very red, warm or tender; the rash is accompanied by dizziness, confusion, rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, tremors, loss of muscle coordination, worsening cough, vomiting, stiff neck, or a fever higher than 102° F; or if anyone in the household is immune deficient or younger than 6 months old.
Today, there is a safe, effective vaccine that can prevent chickenpox.
Contact dermatitis is a rash that appears within a few hours to a few days after your skin comes into contact with an allergen or irritant. The rash has a visible border where your skin came into contact with the offending substance. Your skin will be itchy, red, raw, or scaly and may have blisters that weep, ooze, or become crusty. While it isn’t contagious or life-threatening, it can make you pretty miserable.
You should try to identify what caused your reaction and avoid it in the future to prevent future occurrences of contact dermatitis. It may take two to four weeks after getting rid of the item that caused the contact dermatitis for the rash to clear up. Cool, wet compresses and anti-itch creams can help relieve symptoms in the meantime.
A diaper rash is a common form of inflamed skin that occurs on areas of the body which are in contact with a diaper. The skin may look wet, red, or irritated and may feel warm to the touch. Afflicted babies will often fuss during a diaper change.
This itchy rash on the buttocks is a common rash for infants and toddlers to suffer from, although it can afflict anybody who wears a diaper, and is usually caused by spending too much time in a dirty diaper. although it can also be caused by chafing and skin sensitivity.
Diaper rash can usually be treated at home by air drying, changing diapers more frequently, and using ointments. Take your baby to the doctor if the rash:
- Is severe or unusual
- Gets worse
- Bleeds, itches, or oozes
- Is accompanied by a fever
A drug allergy causes a rash that may occur several days or even weeks after taking a medication. It causes a mild, itchy, red rash and may be accompanied by a fever, an upset stomach, and small red or purple spots on the skin.
Potentially life-threatening symptoms may include hives, a racing heart, swelling, itching, and trouble breathing.
If you have symptoms of a drug allergic reaction, you should seek immediate medical attention.
Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, looks like white or yellow scaly patches of skin that might flake off. Hair loss may occur within the rash, and the area may be itchy, red, oily, or greasy. Eczema typically affects people who suffer from asthma or allergies. While it is more common in children, it can happen to people of any age.
There is no cure for eczema however, self-care measures such as avoiding harsh soaps, moisturizing regularly, and applying medicated creams or ointments can relieve itching and prevent new outbreaks.
Fifth disease, also known as “slapped cheek disease,” is a viral infection that causes a bright red round rash on the cheeks, upper arms, and legs as well as a headache, fatigue, low fever, sore throat, runny nose, diarrhea, or nausea.
Children are more likely to develop this lacy-patterned rash, which may be easier to see after a hot bath or shower. While typically mild in children, fifth disease can be more severe for pregnant women or anyone with a compromised immune system. Fifth disease in pregnant women, for example, can cause life-threatening anemia for the unborn baby.

Symptoms of flea bites appear immediately after being bitten by a flea. The itchy red bump is typically surrounded by a halo and often appears in clusters on the lower legs and feet.
Fleas reproduce quickly, especially in homes with pets, and they can be difficult to get rid of, occasionally requiring the assistance of a professional exterminator. Flea bites will get better without treatment, but only eliminating fleas from your home can prevent future bites. Fleas can’t fly, but if they were human, they could jump over skyscrapers in one leap

Hand, foot, and mouth disease is a mild, contagious viral infection which typically affects children under the age of five. It may cause red spots that are either flat or raised on the palms of the hands, soles of the feet and possibly the butt or genital area, along with painful, red blisters in the mouth and on the tongue and gums.
A fever is often the first symptom of hand, foot, and mouth disease, appearing three to six days after contact with the virus. Sores in the mouth appear a day or two later, followed by a rash on the hands and feet a day or two after that.
Hand, foot, and mouth disease is typically mild. Your child should see a doctor if sores in the mouth prevent drinking or if symptoms worsen after a few days.

Impetigo is a contagious bacterial infection that is common in babies and children. An irritating rash with fluid-filled blisters that pop easily and form a honey-colored crust is often located around the nose, mouth, and chin.
Antibiotics are typically recommended to help prevent the spread of impetigo to others. Children should be kept home from school until no longer contagious, which is typically about 24 hours after starting the antibiotic.

Kawasaki disease typically affects children under the age of five. It can cause a red, swollen “strawberry” tongue; a high fever; swollen, red palms and soles of the feet; swollen lymph nodes; and bloodshot eyes.
While it typically improves on its own, it can lead to an aneurysm of the coronary artery as a complication, which can be fatal.
If you or a loved one are showing symptoms of Kawasaki Disease, seek urgent medical attention.
Symptoms of measles, a viral respiratory infection, include a fever, sore throat, red or watery eyes, loss of appetite, cough, and a runny nose with a red rash that spreads from the face down the body several days after the rest of the symptoms begin. Tiny red spots with blue-white centers may also appear inside the mouth.
Measles can be very serious and still kills about 100,000 people a year, mostly children under the age of five.
While measles used to be common, it can almost always be prevented by receiving the measles vaccine. According to the CDC, “The best protection against measles is measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine. MMR vaccine provides long-lasting protection against all strains of measles. Your child needs two doses of MMR vaccine for best protection: The first dose at 12 through 15 months of age and the second dose at 4 through 6 years of age.

Psoriasis is a process that speeds up the life cycle of skin cells, which causes scaly, silvery, sharply-defined skin patches which are typically located on the scalp, elbows, knees, and lower back. The patches are itchy and may be painful.
There is no cure for psoriasis, and it is a chronic problem that may come and go. Treatment revolves around trying to slow down the life cycle of the skin cells. Lifestyle changes such as moisturizing, quitting smoking, and managing stress can help.
Ringworm gets its name from the distinctive shape of the rash and has nothing to do with worms. It is caused by a fungus and creates itchy circular, scaly rashes with a raised border and healthy skin in the middle of the ring.
The same fungus that causes ringworm also causes jock itch and athlete’s foot. Antifungal creams or medications are required to treat ringworm.

Rosacea is a chronic skin problem with no known cause that leads to recurring cycles of fading and relapse, which may be triggered by spicy food, alcohol, sunlight, stress, and the intestinal bacteria Helicobacter pylori. There are four different subtypes, each with its own set of symptoms.
Common symptoms of rosacea include facial flushing or redness; raised, red bumps; dry skin; and skin sensitivity.

Scabies is a contagious, itchy skin disease caused by an infestation of the microscopic Sarcoptes scabiei mite, which lives in and burrows into your skin, where it lays eggs. It may take four to six weeks for symptoms to appear.
Symptoms include a very itchy rash that may be pimply, scaly, or made up of tiny blisters as well as raised white or flesh-colored lines.
Scarlet fever is an infection due to group A Streptococcus bacteria that involves a bright red rash which covers the entire body (apart from the hands and feet) and shows up during or soon after a bout of strep throat. The red bumps of the rash are so rough that they may feel like sandpaper. Scarlet fever will also cause a bright red tongue.
Scarlet fever is most common in children from five to 15. Antibiotics are usually effective, but left untreated, scarlet fever can result in more-serious conditions that affect the heart, kidneys, and other parts of the body.

Seborrheic eczema or dermatitis is a type of eczema that commonly affects the scalp, although it can affect the ears, nose or mouth. It appears as white or yellow scaly patches of skin that flake off or cause stubborn dandruff. Affected areas of the skin may be red, itchy, greasy, or oily and may have hair loss. It’s known as a crib cap when it happens to babies.
Seborrheic dermatitis may clear up without treatment, but it may also resist treatment or keep coming back. Cleaning the area daily with a gentle soap or shampoo can reduce oiliness and dead skin buildup.

Shingles causes a rash involving clusters of fluid-filled blisters that break easily and weep fluid. The rash is extremely painful and may burn, tingle, or itch, even if there are no blisters present. The rash occurs in a striped pattern commonly on the torso but occasionally on other parts of the body including the face. The rash may be accompanied by a low fever, chills, a headache, or fatigue.
The varicella-zoster virus causes chickenpox, then lies dormant. It may reactivate as shingles many years later.

SLE is an autoimmune disease which displays various symptoms and affects multiple body systems and organs. SLE is often accompanied by a classic butterfly-shaped face rash that crosses from cheek to cheek over the nose which may appear or get worse in the sun.
Other symptoms may include a wide array of skin and mucous membrane symptoms that range from rashes to ulcers.
A tick bite can cause pain or swelling in the affected area with a rash, burning sensation, blisters, or difficulty breathing. Ticks may stay attached for a long time, and bites typically don’t appear in clusters.
The greater concern with tick bites is that they can cause a wide variety of diseases including Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever.
If you get bitten by a tick, remove it immediately, being careful to get the entire head out and not just the body, and contact your healthcare provider for assistance.
Don’t See Your Rash?
If you don’t see your rash in the pictures above and are looking for a diagnosis, we recommend booking a video appointment with a PlushCare doctor. The doctor will look at your rash and be able to give you an official diagnosis and treatment plan.
Rashes can have a variety of different causes. Common causes of rashes include:
- Coming into contact with something that causes an allergic or otherwise adverse reaction, such as soap, laundry detergent, beauty products, latex, rubber, elastic, dye in clothing, or poisonous plants
- Bug bites
- Autoimmune diseases
- Fungal infections
- Skin irritation
- Bacterial infections
- Infestation of mites
- Viral infections
Many mild rashes can be treated at home. To help relieve discomfort and promote healing, try the following:
- Use mild, unscented soaps and cleansers
- Wash your skin and hair with lukewarm water instead of hot
- Pat rashes dry instead of rubbing
- Avoid covering rashes when possible. They heal better when they can breathe.
- Stop using new products that may have triggered the rash
- Avoid scratching – it can lead to potentially-serious infections
- Itchy rashes can be soothed by hydrocortisone cream or calamine lotion
- Take an oatmeal bath
- Over the counter pain relievers such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Motrin) can help relieve minor pain associated with a rash.
- Joint pain
- A sore throat
- A slight fever above 100.4° F
- Red streaks or tenderness
- A recent tick or animal bite
- Increasing pain or discoloration of the rash
- Tightness or itching of the throat
- Trouble breathing
- Swelling of your face or limbs
- A high fever
- Severe head or neck pain
- Vomiting or diarrhea
What you can expect during an appointment exploring the type and cause of a rash
Your doctor will look at the rash, and ask you about:
- When the rash started and how its progressed
- Your medical history
- Your diet
- What products or medications you have recently started using
- Your hygiene
While only a medical professional can diagnose the cause of your rash, hopefully, you now have more information about what’s causing you to itch.
Remember, the top online doctors at PlushCare are available for same day appointments and can treat your rash without you needing to leave home.

90,000 when surgical methods of removing hemorrhoidal inflammations are needed
Surprisingly, until now many people who consider themselves modern and liberated, out of embarrassment try to avoid visits to the proctologist.
At the same time, such behavior in the case, at a time when a person suddenly has a lump near the anus, can lead to the formation of important complications as well as irreversible consequences.
In this article we will tell you what exactly there is a growth or a ball that jumped out near the anus and demonstrate what hemorrhoids look like, so that you can compare your manifestations with the manifestations in photo
If a person has a lump near the anus and, at the same time, he feels itching and burning near this area, or at the end of a bowel movement there are traces of blood on toilet paper, it is possible with a high degree of possibility to assume the presence of hemorrhoids.A lump on the anus is also possible as a result of thrombosis of the external hemorrhoid.
and the presence of a ball in the anus immediately behind the internal sphincter. But a lump near the anus can turn out to be both paraproctitis and such an important pathology as cancer. A growth on the anus may represent a polyp, and a pimple on the anus is fully possible perianal papilloma.
A small pimple near the anus may turn out to be genital warts:
But, however, much more often if a lump appeared near the anus, it is, in most cases, light blue and small, in fact, does not cause discomfort, then this is one of the most common indicators of developing hemorrhoids:
A growth, a ball or a lump near the anus with hemorrhoids are venous nodules, the size of which depends on the degree of their filling with venous blood.
In hemorrhoids, rectal veins are pathologically enlarged, unfortunately, this process is irreversible at an advanced stage of the disease.
The appearance of a growth or a ball near the anus is due to an increase in pressure in the rectal veins, therefore, such seals often appear, for example, in women during pregnancy, at a time when there is increased intra-abdominal pressure.
Constipation contributes to an even greater increase in pressure in the veins of the rectum.Often, patients reveal that a lump quickly arose in their anus, almost immediately after the act of defecation, if they had to push along with this.
A small ball in the anus does not actually cause any particular discomfort, does not hurt, and in most cases is found by chance during hygiene procedures.
If a huge lump near the anus has come out, it, in most cases, causes pain and also often complicates the procedure for emptying the intestines.
In the case of more important than hemorrhoids, the circumstances due to which such a lump appeared, and with the development of important complications, they begin to bleed. Sometimes bleeding in the anus is severe enough.
Treatment and prevention
At the end of the diagnosis clarification, what exactly is the growth that jumped out near the anus and the exclusion of a malignant process that requires a mandatory operation, it makes no sense to start immediately prescribing drug therapy.The patient needs to start treatment with a diet.
He must exclude from his diet all fatty foods and smoked meats that contribute to the appearance and aggravation of constipation. With frequent constipation, laxatives are needed.
In addition, it is directed to abandon spices, spices and alcoholic beverages that provoke an exacerbation of the inflammatory process.
It is extremely useful for improving venous circulation systematically to exercise and expand physical activity.Classes in the swimming pool are especially needed.
If the work requires a long stay in one position, you need to take short breaks to warm up.
Time should be given to regularity of the stool, on the basis of this, with prolonged constipation, it is possible to prescribe laxatives.
If hemorrhoids are bleeding, then doctors prescribe drugs with a hemostatic effect. In addition, drugs that affect the tone of the venous walls, the so-called venotonics, are prescribed without fail.
Of the surgical methods used in case of complications or when the process is neglected and resistance to drug treatment, preference is given to minimally invasive techniques.
Sclerotherapy and ligation of cones with latex rings are performed much more often.
In case of their insufficient effectiveness, bandaging or excision of the growth is done; from time to time, plastic of the anal sphincter is needed.
Speaking about the treatment of lumps in the anus, it is also directed to say about such circumstances of their appearance as paraproctitis and coccygeal cyst.Pathology in order for the character to constantly require treatment from a surgeon.
What treatment is needed if a lump appears on the anal?
A lump on the analities in men and women is a very unpleasant symptom. It is extremely rare for people with a similar education to consult a proctologist. And the point here is not at all the rarity of the disease, but the fact that only a few can really overcome the embarrassment and come to the doctor’s office.For most people, going to a proctologist becomes a serious challenge, even for strong, self-confident individuals.
Many male representatives simply decide that a lump is a sign of common hemorrhoids, and therefore refuse to visit a specialist, hoping to get rid of the disease on their own. The only problem is that the bumps near the anus do not always appear due to hemorrhoids.
If a person has a lump in the anus, or not far from the anus, while there are additional symptoms in the form of itching, burning and traces of blood, then with a high degree of probability we can say that it is hemorrhoids.
In this case, the location of the lump directly in the anal canal indicates inflammation of the internal hemorrhoid.
If the lump is located somewhat away from the anus, then it is likely that the cause of this was thrombosis, which forced the hemorrhoidal node to come out.
However, hemorrhoids are not the only disease that can be accompanied by the appearance of bumps.
Sometimes the appearance of a ball near the anus indicates the development of paraproctitis – a disease in which tissue suppuration near the rectum occurs.In addition, a lump near the anus can be an oncological neoplasm, representing a malignant or benign tumor from the inside.
Also, a lump in the anus can easily turn out to be a polyp, that is, an unnatural proliferation of tissues. Such formations are often found over the mucous membranes. In general, polyps do not pose a great danger, they only cause discomfort. Such cones are removed quite simply – with the help of liquid nitrogen.
Sometimes the bumps turn out to be papillomas or warts. These are formations in the form of warts with an inflammatory nature. As a rule, they appear with inflammation of the mucous membranes.
It is only an experienced specialist who has on hand all the necessary results of analyzes and laboratory studies to determine which cones were formed, and what caused their appearance.
Therefore, self-treatment of bumps in the anus at home is prohibited in order to avoid deterioration.
What does a bump look like on the anus with hemorrhoids?
An interesting feature of hemorrhoids cones – they practically do not cause any discomfort. Therefore, at first, the patient may not even notice the appearance of bumps in himself. Such neoplasms are small in size, blue in color. The fact is that cones appear near the anality from venous tissue, their size depends on how much they are filled with blood. If we allow too much expansion of the veins, that is, ignore the treatment of hemorrhoids, the resulting pathology will become irreversible.
Most often, bumps appear in cases when the pressure in the veins around the rectum rises. It usually occurs in pregnant women later in pregnancy, as well as in other women and men with constipation.

The best remedy for hemorrhoids during pregnancy
Treatment of cones in the anus
In most cases, bumps in the anus of a pregnant woman do not require surgery. For treatment, doctors prescribe various medications: rectal suppositories, ointments, gels.
The most effective suppositories are Procto-Glivenol, Anestezol and Nigepan.Heparin ointment has proven itself in the fight against hemorrhoidal cones, which restores blood circulation and relieves blood clots. In parallel with the use of all these drugs, doctors prescribe tablets: Troxevasin and Detralex. These agents strengthen the walls of the venous vessels, which helps to exclude the occurrence of blood clots.
If drug treatment has not brought the proper results, surgical methods are used:
- Sclerotherapy . A special solution is injected into the lump, which glues the walls of the formation.Because of this, the bump gradually begins to dry out, as a result of which it completely disappears. On average, full recovery takes 1-2 weeks. This operation is painless and does not take much time. After 20-30 minutes, the patient can leave and go about their daily activities.
- Infrared photocoagulation . The hemorrhoidal lump is cauterized with a laser beam, which stops the supply of power to it. In a few days, it dries out, after which it disappears itself. The procedure is completely safe for mother and baby; it is carried out in inpatient clinics under local anesthesia.
- Latex Ring Ligation . This treatment works well with internal bumps. A lump is drawn into the working tube of the ligator. One or two rings are thrown at its base, which impede the flow of blood into the lump. Over time, it dies off and falls off. Only one bump can be treated in one procedure, the session is repeated after 2 weeks.
Getting rid of bumps in the anus with a scalpel
If drug treatment does not help and the bumps continue to grow, it is necessary to go under the surgeon’s knife.Such procedures are prescribed only at advanced stages. At the site of the formation of the cone, a part of the mucous membrane is excised, the cone itself is not cut off. After that, part of the tissue is lifted and sutured to the rectum.
Blood ceases to flow into the lump, so soon they die off. This method is only suitable for outside buds. If education torments you inside the aisle, they use the traditional method – they simply cut it off.
The main goal of preventing the occurrence of lumps in the anus is aimed at eliminating constipation and normalizing digestion.A woman should follow the basics of proper nutrition, eat often, but in small portions. Try to give preference to cereals, but not rice and semolina.
Eat more fruits and vegetables, but forget about potatoes – because of the large amount of starch, they cause constipation. It is necessary to completely abandon smoked, fatty, spicy, alcoholic beverages. Try to spend more time outdoors and exercise. To prevent hemorrhoids from tormenting you, do exercises to strengthen the abs and anus muscles.
Traditional medicine will help to cope with the initial stages of the course of the disease. For prevention, make special baths of potassium permanganate or chamomile decoction. Carefully follow your personal hygiene in the perineal area: wash yourself with cold water for 15-30 seconds after each act of bowel movement.
Do not spend a lot of time sitting at the wheel or computer – try to take a horizontal or vertical position more often. Do not panic if you have a lump in your anus – reconsider your lifestyle and contact a qualified specialist.

As a rule, conservative, that is, without the use of surgical intervention, methods of treatment are very effective, their effectiveness sometimes reaches 80% of all existing cases with the appearance of complications in the treatment of hemorrhoids.
Usually, conservative methods of treating hemorrhoids begin to bring the desired results within the first month of treatment, but if they do not give the desired result, only then doctors resort to surgical methods of treating hemorrhoids, including hemorrhoidal cones of the anus.
Today, there are also non-operational methods for treating hemorrhoids, which involve the use of special drugs that allow for the complete death of hemorrhoids or their degeneration processes, which allows them to get rid of without any risk to the patient’s health.After such methods of treatment, the patient undergoes a special rehabilitation course of treatment, which is prescribed by an experienced doctor, a proctologist. Such a course usually involves getting rid of the patient from heavy physical exertion and overvoltage.
Today, the treatment of hemorrhoidal cones of the anus is carried out quite effectively with the help of laser treatment, the use of latex rings and sclerotherapy.
DIY pine cones basket – Crafts from natural material, Autumn, for children from 7 years old
A basket of pine cones with your own hands will decorate your home for a very long time, and you will spend only a couple of hours on its creation. The main thing is to stock up on with a lot of pine cones , the rest you will find without any problems at home. But these cones are best collected in the fall.
What you need to prepare before starting the craft:
- Pine cones (LOT)
- Wire (thin)
- Glue (glue is fine, but it’s best to use a glue gun)
Let’s start execution:
- We make a circle from 11 or 12 cones, connecting them with a thin wire.First, we fix the wire on the first bump, as shown in the photo.
- We attach the rest of the cones, wrapping around each subsequent wire and forming a ring equal to the size of the bottom of the basket. In this case, the bases of the cones form the outer edge of the ring.
- Make a second circle of cones, the diameter of which is slightly smaller than that of the first. You will need 8 to 10 cones. Our basket is made up of two rings of cones. To make it deeper, you can make a third ring.
- Glue the finished rings together.For the handle, we make a semicircle of cones, fastening them with wire in the same way as the rings. To prevent the handle from losing its shape, we attach it to a thick wire frame.
- Next, we make the bottom of the basket out of cardboard, gluing it to the bottom ring of cones.
This basket will decorate any interior . You can put dry twigs or flowers made of feathers or paper into it, which will give our creation even more originality.

Pine cones basket: master class
When you have all the items listed above, you can start making the basket:
- First you need to connect the cones in a circle. The cones are fastened together with a thin wire in a circle. It is best to use a wire that blends in color with the buds so that it is not visible later. We wrap the short end of the wire around the first bump, and then we wrap it around the second, long end./ li>
- Attach the second cone to the first and simply wrap the wire around it. You should fasten 10-12 cones together in a ring so that the lower parts of the cones stick out.
- We make the second ring in the same way, however, it should be of a smaller diameter – use 8-10 cones this time. Our pine cone basket will be made of two rings. If you want to make a deeper basket, hold a third cone ring together.
- We connect all the rings together with hot melt glue.
- The cones for the handle of our basket are attached with a thin wire to a thick wire frame. Use 8-10 buds.
- At the bottom of the basket, insert thick cardboard or 2-3 cones with the bottom outward and attach them with hot melt glue.
That’s so easy, in just half an hour you will have a basket of cones, made by hand.
It can be decorated with ribbons, branches, flowers or fruits. And on the eve of New Year and Christmas holidays, using Christmas tree decorations and your basket of cones, you can make a wonderful festive composition.We wish you good luck!

- Floristic wire.
How to make a cone decoration :
- To each petal of plastic flowers from our electric garland we glue scales from a pine cone. 5 petals – 5 scales in two rows.
- We wrap the wires going from both sides to the flower bulbs with floristic wire. This is how the “stems” of flowers are obtained.
- The resulting flowers are collected in small bunches, which are wrapped with electrical tape. Several cones are tied with floral wire.The end of this wire forms a stem about the same length as the flower stems made earlier.
- Bunches of flowers are put together, complementing them with cones on the stems. We wrap the bouquet with electrical tape and put it in a vase. We arrange the flowers in the bouquet in the way we like, put the lamp in a suitable place and plug the garland into the outlet.
Now it remains to admire the resulting decoration!

How to save buds for future use
The cone is a ready-made decorative material produced by nature itself. You can make many different things from cones, beautiful and unusual.
But how to save cones for future use , for example, for winter crafts? It’s no secret that natural materials need to be collected during the season.
The season for the fall of cones is mid-autumn, you can collect them in the spring. I would preserve their charm for several months!
So method one : soaking
- Action one – collect cones. What you want, closed, open, not entirely clean, everything will be corrected later, in the process of processing.
- Cleanse seeds, moss, pine needles from your prey. Use tweezers, a brush, but do not be too zealous: this is only a preparatory stage.
- Soak the buds in a bowl with a mixture of water and vinegar. The proportions are different, since vinegar also comes in different percentages. You can use dishwashing liquid instead of vinegar. The size of the pot depends on the number of buds you are going to place in it.
- After about half an hour, remove the buds from the water and spread them on a newspaper or cloth to dry overnight.
- Wet buds close and open when dry.
Second method : drying
- Preheat the oven to 120 degrees (Celsius).
- Place the cones on the baking sheet so that there is some distance between them. Cover the baking sheet with parchment paper or cling foil to protect the baking sheet from the tar released when the cones are heated and from debris from which they will be cleaned.
- When the bumps are open, remove them from the oven. This can happen both after 30 minutes and after 2 hours.All this time, cones should not be left unattended in the oven. They are highly flammable, and you need to be ready at any time to snatch them out of the oven.
- After removing the cones from the oven, leave to cool for 10 minutes, as long as possible. After cooling, the buds are ready for further use.
Instead of the oven, they also use the microwave, turned on at full power, leaving the cones in it for 1 minute.
Many cone lovers are faced with the fragility of their favorite material.A little collected cones lie, and then you look – some have rotted, others have dried up, as they say, “to no”. Therefore, conservation of cones , or rather their condition, is so important. Even soaked and dried buds need to be strengthened. They can be stored for a long time by sealing them with varnish or wax.
Dye is less preferred in the sense that it will give the buds color. But perhaps the color is exactly what you want. Let’s take a closer look at the required steps.
- Decide which bud sealing method is best for you. The preparation of the workplace depends on this. To paint the cones with a brush or dip them in varnish-wax-paint, it is enough to cover the table with an old newspaper. It is best to work with a spray outdoors.
- The easiest and fastest way to preserve buds is to spray them with a sealant. If you don’t have a special spray, use regular hairspray. The method is so simple that it seems primitive, but it is effective, and the appearance of the buds after such processing is quite natural.
- The coating with marine varnish is more durable, it is better to paint with a stiff brush and let the cone dry for 30 minutes. You should work with gloves, instead of painting with a brush, you can simply dip the cone into the varnish. So the coating will turn out thicker, the cone must be tied to a string, holding by it, dipped in varnish and allowed to drain off the remnants, and then hung to dry.
- Wax is a good substitute for paint or varnish. It should be melted and cones should be dipped in it. By repeating the procedure several times, you can achieve a thick, very noticeable layer of varnish on the bump.It is worth remembering only that after dipping in any sealer, the cones can close again, although sometimes this turns out to be a very desirable effect.

And floats over the Kama Kotlovskaya bump
Published: 23.07.2015 00:00
We had to get to the top of a high mountain covered with blackberry thickets on our own, leaving the car below, at the very foot.Kotlovskaya bump is the highest place not only in the Yelabuga region, but throughout the entire Kama – one hundred and fifteen meters above the level of the river surface. Climbing to the very top, I take a breath, I look around the Kama open spaces spread below.
Boats with fishermen seem quite small from here, like toys. The opposite bank is in full view. If you look at it through twelve-fold binoculars, you can see how the landlords of the apartments of the Nizhnekamsk high-rise buildings hang linen on the balconies.From this point, the Kama is visible to the east and west for many kilometers. And it is no coincidence that the nomadic Bulgars, who came to these lands in the 8th century, immediately appreciated the favorable strategic location of the “lump”, having arranged their observation post on it. Over time, it became a border outpost on the northeastern outskirts of the Volga Bulgaria.
LIGHTS ON KURGANS
From here, from the height of the steep hill, many centuries ago the Bulgar warriors were looking at the ships sailing along the Chulman River (as the Kama was called in ancient times), leaning on the shafts of their long battle spears.And in case of danger, a huge bonfire was made at the top of the mountain, the flame of which was clearly visible from afar. So, thanks to the “fire” signaling system, the ancient inhabitants of these places warned each other in advance about the approach of enemy troops. The enemy barely had time to approach the fortress, engulfing it in a dense ring of his troops, and in the main cities of Bulgaria they already knew about his invasion and gathered soldiers, sending detachments to the rescue of the besieged.
Judging by the finds, the surroundings of the Kotlovskaya cone were inhabited long before the arrival of the Bulgar tribes on these lands.At one time, archaeologists have discovered as many as two ancient settlements here. The oldest of them dates back to the middle of the first millennium AD.
For the first time, archaeological excavations were carried out here at the end of the 19th century by Kazan historians Alexander Spitsyn and Philip Nefedov. During the Soviet years, Anna Sbrueva’s archaeological expeditions worked, and later Alfred Khalikov, the “father” of Tatarstan archeology, dug here. They found mainly fragments of ceramic vessels and traces of large fireplaces, ancient women’s head jewelry, buttons made of copper and bronze, fish hooks …
But it seems that the main findings of scientists are still ahead – significant areas of two settlements in the vicinity of the village of Kotlovka have not yet been thoroughly examined.
In later times, in the “rebellious” XVII century, the hill was chosen by robbers – runaway peasants, who exchanged the joyless share of serf slavery for the Kama freemen. In those turbulent times, the Kama was teeming with ushkuiniks – river robbers. Until now, there are many stories among the local population about chests filled with coins hidden in secluded coastal grottoes, about treasures buried on sandy islands. They began to search for them several times, but I did not hear about the found treasures.
The name of the village located to the east of the “bump”, in a lowland on the Kama bank, according to one version, is associated with a giant basin in which the first settlers set up their huts.
According to another version, there was a parking lot of barge haulers, who pulled merchant barges with goods along Mother Kama. Here, on the shore, they stopped for the night. Dry wooden branches crackled merrily in the fire, kulesh – burlak porridge gurgled appetizingly in a large, smoked cauldron. And the hungry crewmen, tired of the straps, kneaded their stiff muscles, gradually, without haste, sat around the fire on the coastal stones, crossing themselves, took out wooden spoons from their bosoms, slowly starting to eat …

Since those distant times, a lot of water has flowed under the bridge in the beautiful Kama.Kotlovskie shores witnessed terrible events. During the Civil War, the village found itself in the very center of hostilities: volleys and shells exploded here. Red detachments of divisional commander Azin, with the support of the revolutionary sailors of the Volga flotilla, fought from the direction of Mamadysh to Yelabuga, captured by the Kolchakites.
In the vicinity there are many graves from the times of the Civil. One of them is located in Kotlovka behind the altar of an old abandoned church – here six Red Guards who died in the offensive found their last shelter.
The Temple of Elijah the Prophet, built in the 19th century, was closed in the 1930s, at the height of the “godless five-year plan”. For a long time, a grain warehouse and a collective farm mill were located here – to this day, huge round stone millstones lie in the premises of the dilapidated church.
And today the temple premises look rather gloomy – a rusted roof, crumbling paintings on the walls, empty openings of doors and windows. But who knows, maybe over time they will restore the desecrated shrine. And again the solemn bell chime will float over the bright waters of the Kama.
PERSONS OF KHAN KUCHUM
About two years ago, in Kotlovka, I met a local resident, Leonid Kuchumov. I remember then I was immediately attracted by his unusual “historical” surname.
– My paternal ancestors are Siberian Tatars, subjects of Khan Kuchum, who moved here after the conquest of the Siberian Khanate by Yermak, – he claims. – So my distant great-great-grandfather ended up on these shores. I remember my paternal grandfather well – he had a Tatar appearance: a high-cheekbone face, brown, slightly slanted eyes, a resin mustache with a bracket …
By the way, near the neighboring village of Svinogorya there is a place that residents call the Shirokiy Log.There, according to historians, there was a winter quarters, where Ermak’s Cossacks were preparing to conquer the Siberian land. Archaeologists have discovered here the remains of dugouts, weapons and antiques.
– My grandfather Vasily during the tsarist period was the village headman for two years, – Leonid Semyonovich recalls. – Previously, the postal road passed through Kotlovka and Svinogorye. One winter two local guys stopped a sled on a forest road. Threatening with a gun, they wanted to take away the money. Yes, only the postman was not one of the shy ones: he grabbed a revolver, fired into the air – and they fled.The postman delivered the mail, and reported the incident to the headman. Soon, according to signs, the peasants brought first one of the robbers to the board, then the other …
They beat them with the whole world – by force they managed to calm down the dispersed crowd. Presumably, after such a “lesson” the desire to go out on a dark night on the high road with a flail in their bosoms no longer arose.
AND THE GARDENS WILL BLOWER …
They tried to create a collective farm in Kotlovka back in 1929, but local residents flatly refused to join it.“We can’t plow and sow with our hands,” they said. “Kama herself has been feeding us from time immemorial …”
However, the collective farm was nevertheless created, uniting two villages – Kotlovka and Svinogorye. They were engaged not only in dairy farming, but also in gardening – on the southern slopes from the outskirts to the spring, which the locals call Gremyachy Klyuch, there were shady apple orchards.
Today only memories are left of them. After the collective farm was “finished” in the early nineties, oil workers came to the Kotlov lands, setting up a subsidiary farm.However, it lasted only until the end of the nineties – soon the new owners had financial problems, and they curtailed their activities.
Will a real owner come here in the person of a large investor or farmer, will they revive the village? Then, you see, the cows on the local farms will snort, and the pigsties in the pigsties will grunt. And there – who knows, maybe they will recreate the famous apple orchard near the Rattle Spring.
So far, the residents of Kotlovka can only dream about it …
90,000 Treatment of abscesses and tumors in guinea pigs
Contents of article
Incredibly peaceful character, charming appearance ensured high popularity of guinea pigs.These pets are undemanding to care, rarely get sick. But there are diseases that need to be detected in a timely manner and quality treatment carried out in order to exclude progression and serious consequences. These include benign and malignant tumors, abscesses.
Cause of abscess and its symptoms
An abscess is an inflammatory focus in which pus accumulates. It is formed as a result of the penetration of infection, the multiplication of pathogenic microorganisms.This is a dangerous disease, with its development, the spread of the focus, a lethal outcome is not excluded.
In some cases, the animal’s body itself copes with the inflammatory process, pus comes out, the wound heals. But if the focus is deep, infection provocateurs multiply rapidly, the abscess progresses rapidly, urgent treatment is needed.
The causes of infection can be damage to the skin by hay, or a bite from other animals. If the wound is not treated, microbes and bacteria that provoke inflammatory processes enter it.Outwardly, the disease is manifested by the formation of a lump. Its location is determined by the cause of the inflammatory focus:
- When two individuals are kept in the same cage, fights can occur between pets. As a result of bites, infectious abscesses appear on the back and back.
- In the process of eating hay, micro-injuries can occur. They cause neoplasms in the head area.
- In case of ingrowth of molars into the bone, a periapical formation forms in the jaw area.
If the mass is small, you can try to treat the abscess at home. It is necessary to initiate the process of pus going out, for which an iodine mesh is made on the tumor, compresses with Vishnevsky’s ointment are applied. In most cases, surgery is required to treat abscesses. In addition, the tumor can appear in other diseases. Therefore, it is better to contact a veterinary clinic.
There are several stages in the development of the disease:
- the occurrence of swelling in the affected area;
- tumor growth, pain during mechanical action;
- The appearance of a hole for the release of pus.
Treatment of abscesses
The main method of abscess is resection of diseased tissues, disinfection. It is performed under general anesthesia. After it, for complete recovery and exclusion of relapse, the following are prescribed:
- treatment of surgical sutures within 2 weeks;
- antibiotic injections during the week;
- Rinsing of the abscess capsule, if it remains after the operation.
Periapical abscesses are particularly difficult because they prevent the pet from eating.After their removal, the following are added to the main treatment regimen:
- forced power supply;
- course of corticosteroids.
If there are complications, infusion therapy is prescribed.
Various types of tumors, their localization
Guinea pigs over the age of five are at risk for cancer. Malignant tumors in these animals are diagnosed quite often. The appearance of neoplasms is provoked by various reasons.It can be a hereditary predisposition, stress, obesity. The appearance of a tumor can be caused by food containing chemical dyes and preservatives. They can occur on mucous membranes, organ tissues, bones.
A benign tumor, unlike a cancerous one, does not spread throughout the body. These neoplasms are dangerous in that as they grow, they press on neighboring organs, disrupt their functions. Large tumors can completely immobilize the animal. These formations are easily cured by surgical removal.
A malignant tumor not only grows, but also forms metastases that penetrate into healthy tissues. If such a disease is diagnosed, euthanasia is recommended, since the cancer cannot be completely cured. You can not kill the pet, let him live out his term. In this case, the guinea pig needs quality care, good nutrition, and pain relievers.
Most of the neoplasms in pets appear in the following zones:
Older female and male guinea pigs are at serious risk of developing a neoplasm in the mammary glands.Most often these are benign tumors. When a pathology appears in the lower abdomen, a lump appears that is not connected to the tissues of the subcutaneous tissue, which has a dense structure.
A malignant tumor differs from a benign one:
- the formation of infectious foci, abscess;
- by connection with subcutaneous tissue.
A tumor that appears on the neck can be of a different nature. Tumors appear due to the formation of abscesses, inflammation of the lymph node, an increase in the size of the thyroid gland.They may be evidence of the presence of a malignant neoplasm of lymphosarcoma. Finding a lump on the neck of a guinea pig is a reason for a visit to the veterinarian. It is necessary to diagnose the pathology, to identify the cause.
Back and sides
Swellings on the sides and back appear when a neoplasm forms on the internal organ. In most cases, these are cancers. A lump can appear on the side if the liver, kidney, spleen, intestines, and lung are affected by a malignant tumor.
In addition to the formation of a tumor in the presence of malignant neoplasms, the following symptoms are observed in an animal:
- Loss of appetite;
- lethargy, apathy;
- discharge of blood from the mouth, its appearance in the urine, feces.
Benign tumors are usually formed in skin tissues. The main sites of localization are the testes in males and the anal area. If there is an education on the organ of the reproductive system, you need to contact the veterinary clinic urgently.Swelling of the testicles is observed during puberty, as well as in the presence of a subcutaneous formation, a hair ring. Surgery is required.
Bumps on the cheeks can appear in malignant and benign neoplasms. Tumors have a dense structure, may have the form of a tubercle, bone growth. The animal’s appetite worsens, and aggressive behavior may appear.
In most cases, osteosarcoma malignant tumors form on the bones.In this case, there is a thickening of the ribs and limbs. If the examination does not reveal metastases, the doctor may amputate the injured limb.
Neoplasms in connective tissues are called wen or lipoma. These are benign tumors that look like dense bumps that form under the skin. If the formation does not cause discomfort to the guinea pig, does not grow, no treatment is carried out. With a rapid increase in neoplasm, impaired motor activity, surgical removal is prescribed.
90,000 New Year’s crafts FROM CONCRETE (45 ideas for children).
Good afternoon, today I want to show you what interesting crafts you can make from cones for the New Year. Pine cones are free natural materials that can be used to create original Christmas tree decorations. Pine cones can be used to decorate the New Year’s table setting. New Year’s cones painted with paints can become part of the festive composition in the decor of the house for the New Year.Many crafts are suitable for children. And also ideas for adult cone design. Let’s see what kind of New Year’s crafts you can create with your own hands based on cones (pine and spruce).
from cones with your own hands.
For those who know how to knit (crochet or on a knitting needle), or sew from felt, it will not be difficult to create such winter men on skis or on sledges. We make the body of the little men from an opened pine cone. Head made of a ping-pong ball or a small foam ball tinted in beige gouache.We make skis from ice cream sticks, ski poles – simple toothpicks, fluffy wire handles. Children’s New Year’s creativity from natural material is a good idea for homework or in labor and activity classes at school.
By the same principle, you can put snowmen or penguins on skis. The head of a snowman can be made of a fur white pom-pom (as in the photo of the New Year’s craft below). Or you can make a head from a foam ball, from cotton wool (mix cotton wool with PVA glue and roll a round lump, dry it and use it as a head of a cone-shaped snowman.
And here are the author’s penguins – small (from a pine cone) and large (from a long spruce cone). The penguin’s head is made of a white foam ball painted with black gouache. Headphones made of wire wrapped in woolen thread and two small fur pom-poms. Black penguin wings are cut out of felt or formiam.
You can make a whole flock of penguins in red New Year’s caps from pine cones .. Penguin wings can be made from black plasticine, or pieces of tree bark (as in the photo below).Children will love this DIY craft.
And if you glue big round eyes and a hook nose to a round pine cone, then we get an OWL. We make the wings from felt, or formam, or from a piece of leather (leatherette). Caps for an owl can be glued from bright paper napkins with a New Year’s pattern (this is how our cone owls will look festive).
If you buy pieces of felt (it is sold in sheets, like paper, and you can buy small sheets of different colors) – then you can create a whole series of funny New Year’s animals based on a pine cone.
Pine cone pendant toys
On a Christmas tree with your own hands.
And here’s another idea for the New Year, where pendants are made from cones to decorate the New Year tree. Here everything is done according to the principle – a bump at the bottom, a character’s head at the top. Big-headed bumps are do-it-yourself crafts available for classes with children.
The simplest thing is to take a foam ball, stick the nose and eyes of the buttons on it. The nose can be cut out of a thick piece of orange felt.Or the nose can be sculpted from cotton wool soaked in PVA glue, when solidified, such pva-wool becomes hard like wood (convenient material for handicrafts, especially since you can mix any color of gouache into the pva glue and we get not only a strong part, but also what is needed for you colors).
With the help of felt or fluffy wire, wings can appear at the cone, and then such a craft can be decorated like an angel or a fairy.
made from cones.
If you paint the cone with gouache red, you get the basis for Santa Claus’s crafts. It is better not to paint the cone with a brush. And immediately completely dipping it into a plastic cup with paint. Pour PVA glue into a glass – add red gouache there. We dip the whole bump in this coloring mess.
Important! Save your money. Don’t buy PVA in small tubes from office supplies. Go to the construction department of the store and buy PVA in a liter bucket (at a price it will be 4-7 times cheaper).
Crafts made of cones look very beautiful, in which elements of red color are added – ribbons, beads, felt. These are a great idea for Christmas pine cone crafts – and simple and quick and easy for a child.
You can also make CHRISTMAS crafts from cones and other natural and improvised materials. As wings for angels, you can use lush ribbons, lace patterns. You can crochet fishnet angel wings with your own hands if you have ever knitted napkins.You can make a whole Christmas scene with a newborn baby Jesus in a cradle out of cones and pieces of felt (or fleece).
Decorative Christmas cones
Do it yourself.
And here are samples of handicrafts with pine cones decorated for the new year. As a decoration, we use sprigs of needles from a Christmas tree, green leaves from indoor plants, or torn from a bouquet, small alder cones, pieces of moss, beads, balls, bells, bright ribbons and shiny paper.
Decorated cones that have been pre-painted (by dipping them into a glass with colored PVA glue) look very beautiful and festive. After painting and drying, the bump should be sprinkled with hairspray – the color will become brighter and the bump will begin to shine like glossy. And you can quickly sprinkle glitter on the bump wet from the varnish (sprinkle for nails is suitable).
You can buy small bird figurines at the craft shop. They will look great off the top of your New Year’s bump.Birds can make nests from fir-tree needles, decorate them with red beads.
And also the cones themselves can be decorated with beads from beads, or small balls-pom-poms, pushing them between the scales and fix with hot melt glue.
And more cones can be folded together – in a snowball star. We lay out six snowflakes on the table – butts together – tips apart. And glue them with hot glue from a gun. Cover the gluing place with a snowflake cut out of cardboard, spruce legs, beads or a small cone (the tip cut off from a large cone).
from SCALES of cones.
And here is an interesting way to make crafts from cones for the new year. If you take and pull out the scales from the cone. Then from them you can (as from natural puzzles) collect any pattern or volumetric shape.
For example, let’s cut a star out of cardboard. And we lay out the scales on the glue along the contour of this star, gradually, row by row, getting to the middle. This craft will appeal to school-age children – only the scales need to be pulled in advance.
You can simply lay out a flower from the scales of a cone on a round piece of cardboard. You also need to start with the EDGES of a cardboard circle, and row by row to reach the middle of the flower. We glue fabric lace or paper snowflake to the back of the flower. We get an elegant openwork craft for the New Year.
You can also decorate a paper cone with scales from a cone. So we get a Christmas tree craft from natural pineal material (as in the photo below).
And here’s another interesting New Year’s craft.We take milk cartons (small size). We paint them in white gouache, and draw black stripes over them (we imitate the color of birch bark). Cut a round hole in one of the sides of the box. And glue the top of the milk box (it is shaped like a roof house) with cone scales on hot thermo-glue from a pistol. And we get just such (photo below) New Year’s craft in the form of bird houses. Very beautiful and unusual.
And also the scales can be pasted over the foam plastic tummy of a snowman – put on such a fur coat made of cones.A beautiful craft for older children.
Cones on wreaths
and New Year’s panels on the wall.
Very interesting decorative panels can be made from cones. If you put together any shape from the rails (for example, a star), then you can glue it over with cones – and you get an original New Year’s craft that can be hung on the wall, leaned against the wall next to the tree. You can wrap this cone star with a garland, make the backlight with bulbs.
Armed with glue from a pistol, you can collect an openwork snowflake craft from cones. And also use it as a panel on the wall.
And if you have a small number of cones, you can make a wall panel from another natural material, and use the cones as an additional decoration.
Christmas wreaths can also be made from cones. To do this, they can be painted in any color (dipped in glue-glue, tinted with gouache, or covered with paint from a spray can).
We make a wreath on the basis of a wooden or cardboard ring. We attach the cones to the base ring with glue.
New Year’s compositions
for table decoration.
Also, cones can become part of the New Year’s composition that decorates your festive table on the New Year. You can simply spread the colored buds on the table between the dishes and glasses.Or you can hang it from a chandelier by bright ribbons or hang it on the edge of the table (as in the photo below).
You can also make a serving boutonniere from cones to decorate the plate of each guest.
Looks beautiful if you match the color of the cone with the same color of the shiny dressing. Make the buds sparkle and sparkle like frosty patterns on a winter window.
You yourself can come up with various compositions with cones and other materials. Your fantasies, interesting “unnecessary things” found in your desk drawer can become a source of original exclusive do-it-yourself cone crafts.
Candlesticks with cones
Do it yourself.
Likewise, candles can be included in your tabletop New Year’s composition of cones. You can simply place candles in a beautiful dish and lay out cones around them, painted in shades close to the color of the candles.
If you are making a craft where all the cones are glued to each other, then when assembling such a glue cone pile, insert pieces of plastic tubes inside – you can insert candles in these places.When gluing, make sure that the tube holders for the candles are glued strictly vertically – otherwise your candles will not stand in even columns, but in a curve and obliquely.
You can do it easier. Put a glass on a cardboard circle. And around it, on cardboard, attach cones, pine branches, berries, stars carved from birch bark and orange peel to the glue.
That is, any decor method is suitable for creating a candlestick. Or we put a candle inside a ring of cones and natural material.Or we glue (tie with a ribbon) natural material to the body of the candle itself. Or we put a candle inside a tall glass and put cones and other tinsel around it right into the glass (as in the third photo below).
From pine cones.
And also your New Year’s compositions from cones can be decorated as tall PYRAMID-FIRES. Such Christmas trees can be folded from ordinary cones, from painted in gold paint from a spray can.And you can decorate them with ribbons, felt flowers, small Christmas balls (also glue them with thermal glue).
These are the ideas I have for the New Year 2018. Let these works inspire you. And let your buds bloom with do-it-yourself ideas in your skillful hands.
Successful New Year creativity.
